GrandPrixAdvisor.com publishes free online travel guides to circuits hosting Formula 1, MotoGP and WEC events.

We don't pretend to rival with the Rough Guides and Lonely Planets of this world, but rather complement their guide books with additional information.

We gather and compile opinions of spectators via the 'Write a Review' section of the site, supplemented by hours of desk research to make sure we bring you the facts and figures relevant to your dream trip. We take into account F1 seasonal factors, such as increased airfares or accommodation prices, as well as possible currency exchange rate fluctuations to give a realisitic estimate of the budget required to attend a race weekend.

The beautiful pictures on this website are kindly supplied by Ferrari, McLaren, Williams Martini, Renault Sport F1, Mercedes AMG, Red Bull Media House, Sauber, Haas, Honda, Yamaha, Toyota, Porsche and FIA WEC, whom we are grateful for their blessing.

The site is also an advertising platform for motor racing related businesses (e.g. ticket agencies, official merchandise) and businesses close to circuits (e.g. hotel reservation, restaurants, etc) wishing to promote their products and services. However, at GrandPrixAdvisor.com, we only promote or advertise products and services we believe in.

The website is edited by Damien Marquez (Team Principal) and managed by Benjamin Slabak (Technical Director). It started back in January 2011 when Damien bounced off the concept of this site to James Allen, a leading F1 commentator, who loved the idea. Our first grand prix guide was released just after the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix that year and have tried several formats until we settled on the current one.

James Allen is currently the F1 correspondent for the Financial Times and presents the on-site coverage for Australian TV Network 10. He is also the official interviewer for the FIA F1 press conferences and the FOM post qualifying and post race TV interviews. James is probably more well known for his stints as lead F1 commentator for ITV from 2000 to 2008 and for BBC Radio 5 Live between 2012 and 2015. His website, www.jamesallenonf1.com, is an essential read as far as news and analysis are concerned. He explains F1 matters in a very digestible way.
